It’s still autumn out there. All the oak trees have turned bronze, but a lot of red and yellow leaves are still on the trees. It has been a beautiful autumn, no matter how awful other things have been, the weather has been amazing and glorious. I’m hoping that from this point onward, we start to pull out of our national slump and by next year, it will really BE better. Not just hoping for better. Really being there.
Our birds are still eating their little hearts out. I have very little money, but I decided I could somehow manage $8/month and join the Cornell Ornithological group. Among other things, they hold courses so while watching people getting drunk, celebrating and probably catching a disease, I was identifying birds on line. I learned that I do well if I recognize the bird and I need to see the colors or I don’t recognize it. Interesting to discover ones weaknesses.
